Singer Louis Tomlinson, of One Direction fame, has revealed that his solo career “kind of happened by accident”.
He surprised fans before Christmas by debuting a solo single called ‘Just Hold On’, which was a collaboration with Steve Aoki, and has now admitted that it came about organically with no forward planning:
“It kind of happened by accident, if I’m being honest. I didn’t really know that I wanted to do anything on my own. We just started trying things, and actually, this is one of the first songs that we wrote and recorded, so we got lucky, really.”
Referring to how the collaboration came about, he adde: “We went to go watch a Calvin Harris show. Calvin pulled out and then Steve did the set and, yeah, we were absolutely blown away. We had an amazing night. And then after that night, I messaged Steve on Twitter and said, ‘Great show. Do you want to work together?’ And here we are…It’s quite romantic!”
‘Louis is a brilliant songwriter and had not initially planned his own solo career.
‘But he’s been back in the studio and has been working on some really amazing music.
‘They think he could be a real success as a solo artist, given his proven ability to write hit records and massive fanbase as part of 1D.’
Tomlinson lost his mother to leukemia just last month at the age of 43 and has reportedly broken up from his girlfriend Danielle Campbell after one year together.
